Happy Birthday To…

IMG_0887IMG_2194IMG_2393A very special Happy Birthday to this little lady! Our niece Cassidy turns 9 tomorrow and we are so excited to celebrate with her. I can’t believe its been a little under 9 years since I first held her! She is a gorgeous ray of sunshine and brings so much joy our lives. She is girly, sassy, funny, kind and lights up the room. I can’t wait to see what year 9 has in store, but I don’t know if I can handle her getting any cuter or older! She is just precious. Happy Birthday Cassidy!

10 Verses for an Anxious Heart

10 Verses for an Anxious Heart

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. - Isaiah 41:10

 

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” - Matthew 11:28-30

 

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. - Philippians 4:6-7

 

Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. - 1 Peter 5:7

 

I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” - John 16:33

 

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life ? “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. - Matthew 6:25-34

 

Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. - Romans 5:1

 

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love -1 John 4:18

 

Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. - 1 Peter 5:6-7

 

Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken. -Psalm 55:22

October Stitch Fix Review

Stitch Fix October 2014Its that time again or my October Stitch Fix review! Most of you are probably familiar with Stitch Fix. If you aren’t, I will let you in on an awesome company. Basically, Stitch Fix delivers a personalized shopping experience right to your front door. You start by going to the Stitch Fix website, filling out a style profile and then deciding on a delivery date. You then pay a $20 styling fee which will be applied as credit toward anything you keep from your shipment. Stitch Fix will send you 5 items of clothing or accessories (you can specify what you are wanting). Once you receive your shipment, you can try everything on in the comfort of your home, decide what you would like to keep and mail the rest back in a pre-paid envelope.

 

Here we go, check out what was in my third box and let me know what you think I should keep:

Shara Houndstooth Printed VestShara Houndstooth Printed Vest

I love, love, love this vest! I have always wanted to try out a vest, however, I have been nervous it would feel bulky but this one is light weight and not too bulky at all. There are so many ways I can wear this vest since its black and white. I plan on wearing it with my plaid shirts or with a plain black shirt most of the time.

Guiliano Plaid & Fringe Cotton CardiganGuiliano Plaid & Fringe Cotton Cardigan

I am on the fence about this piece. I love how “fall” the print is and I am loving plaid right now, so I am pretty drawn to it. However, the piece doesn’t seem quite finished on the edges. It is very light weight which would be great for Texas though. I’m just not sure what to do about this one.

Margerie Stripe & Dot Open CardiganMargerie Stripe & Dot Open Cardigan

This cardigan is striped on the outside and doted on the inside. I really don’t like this piece. It is too short in the back for me and it bunches in the back. I really like my cardigans long so I can wear them with leggings too.

Alva Cowl Neck TopAlva Cowl Neck Top

I like the color of this top, however the fit wasn’t good at all. It was way to big all around but especially in the sleeves. It could work with leggings if the sleeves weren’t so long.

Oliver Faux Leather Trim Striped TopOliver Faux Leather Trip Striped Top

I like the way this top looks on the hanger. I love the stripes and neutral colors, however when I put it on, I really didn’t like the fit or style. I can’t really put my finger on it, but it just didn’t feel like me. I felt pretty frumpy in it. Negative on this one for sure.

 

Overall, I really loved my third experience with Stitch Fix because of the vest. If you are interested, click this link to the Stitch Fix website and sign up for an account!
